S.D. Senate passes waterfowl hunting license bill

SD Waterfowl Hunting

PIERRE, S.D. | The South Dakota Senate has passed a measure aimed at ending years of argument over nonresident waterfowl hunting.

Senators voted 33-2 to approve a bill that would return more control over those licenses to the South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission, which regulates hunting and fishing.

The bill would keep the current authorization for 4,000 10-day licenses and 2,000 three-day licenses for out-of-state hunters, but would eliminate provisions that allocate some licenses to specific counties. The Game, Fish and Parks Commission could increase the number of those nonresident licenses  for Waterfowl Hunting by up to 5 percent a year and decide where those licenses could be used to hunt ducks and geese.

The House earlier passed a different version, and will now decide whether to accept changes made by the Senate. — Associated Press

About the Author:

Hi, I am Gregory Beckman, as the main owner of Military Hunting and Fishing let me tell you a little bit more about myself. I am currently an active duty member in the United States Coast Guard. I have been an active duty member for seven years and counting, traveling the world, and defending my country! My experiences have shaped the way that I see the world and my memories will stick with me for a lifetime. Although I may not live in the country, the country lives in me. Traveling the world I have had the chance to experience the wonders of nature in many different places, meeting many different people and tasting wild game that the normal person would not get to experience. Although these experiences have kept me away from home, it has instilled a deep passion of hunting and fishing in my blood. Thank you for joining our site, and I look forward to interacting and sharing stories of our hunting adventures. Gregory A. Beckman
